    This, along with many other Software Update problems, are usually caused by invalid cache files. The way to fix this is to clear Software Update's caches. These are found in your user folder, in Library, in Caches. There will be 2 folders (depending on your Mac OS X version, you may not have both) called Software Update and com.apple.SoftwareUpdate. Delete both of them (if present, while Software Update is NOT running), then try again.
